Splurge Vs. Save: Glitter Loafers

     Another emerging Fall trend I'm really loving is Glitter Slip-On Loafers. I think I professed my love to a lovely black pair from J. Crew a few posts ago, and it hasn't simmered down at all! They are absolutely gorgeous, and I'd never even thought that glitter could end up covering a pair of shoes, or even looking so perfect!
     But, sadly, I can't pay $215 for them so I just stare at them and think "What if.....", and I think a few other people do as well! But, there's no need for us to be sad anymore! Because there's a few pairs to save the day, affordable pairs that look almost if not just as good as our beloved originals! So you be the judge. Would you rather splurge(the more expensive pairs) or save(the less expensive pairs).
Splurge Vs. Save: Glitter Loafers

The Splurges: This list starts off with what I think are the actual originals, which are Jimmy Choo's glitter loafers (for men, though I think women could rock them as well!). I couldn't find the original price for these......but my mind wandered and I figured it'd be a huge splurge! Next up would be my dream pair, a gold and black version of the Darby Glitter Loafers from J. Crew. They're absolutely gorgeous, but out of my budget. So that leaves a pair from Steve Madden, which I guess if you compare the price of these to the J. Crew pair, they're less expensive, but compared to the saves, they're a little bit more expensive. So the Steve Madden pair could be a splurge or a save!


The Saves: Here comes the goodies! My favorite pair out of the saves would have to be glitter loafers from Bamboo for only $20! Though they're not as ridiculously blinged out as my J. Crew dream pair, they're still pretty cute! Then next up is the Multi-Glitter pair from GoJane for $18, which are actually really cute! I love the whole multi-glitter look! And then in the next row, there's a really adorable pair from TopShop for $40, and to me these seem like a classy-glitter. They're not too wild, but just right. And next to those, I really love this pair from BP. Its completely glittered out, and they're so gorgeous! This pair is $60. And like I mentioned before, depending on your wallet, the Steve Madden pair could be a save for $79.95.

P.S Happy Halloween! I'm getting ready to go spend some time with friends & hoard some candy! Have a fun & safe night.
